My dear friend Gayle, who passed away suddenly in December gave me this recipe. I didn't think I could make ribs until I did it this way. Tbese are THE BEST..hence the name: Finger Lickin' Ribs.
Here it is:
1 rack of baby back ribs ( about 3 lbs.)
1 T. sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp. pepper
Mix spices together and rub all over ribs. Line a pan with foil, place ribs in pan with meaty side up and cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
Meanwhile make barbeque sause:
Mix together in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered 25-30 minutes:
1 c. ketchup
1/2 c. white vinegar
2 T. brown sugar
2 tsp. minced garlic
4 tsp. worchestershire sauce
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1/2 tsp. hot pepper sauce (or to taste)
When ribs are done, brush sauce on baked ribs. Grill 12-14 minutes basting once or twice.
Broil in foil lined roasting pan.
Cut into serving pieces and serve with remaining sauce.
Make plenty. These are the best.
